Pushing Pause on Our Kindness Give-A-Way Prize!
Considering December and January are extremely busy for everyone, our team has decided to push pause on our monthly give-a-way prizes. We will resume our awards on February 1, 2019. That said, we are still going to continue our daily social media posts and challenges you to keep spread kindness at your school and in your local community.
Sneak-Peek Into Your Kindness Week!
Start your week off by connecting to your crafty side and end the week by giving love to your school library! Below you will find a daily list of kind things to do, and I list of positive words for you to use when creating your kindness rock.
Are you stuffed to the brim with turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie? We hope you are enjoying your much needed holiday break. And we hope you were able to show your gratitude to your family, friends, and community. We'd love to hear about some of the things you did, post some of your gratitude activities to our blog or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram - use #iChoose2BeKind!
Perhaps you are taking advantage of your time off and you are doing some recruiting to help your school win the 21 Day Kindness Challenge November prize?!? :) There isn't much time left but, nothing is impossible - it can happen!
Below you will find activities for the upcoming Kindness Give-A-Way Challenge week of 11.26 - 11.30. You will start the week off with creating kindness cutie catchers/paper kindness fortune tellers and complete the week by donating shoes to a wonderful organization called soles4soles.com.

10 Extra Special Ways to Encourage Your Students to Show Their Gratitude Over the Thanksgiving Holiday
How can we start each day with a grateful heart? How do we teach our students, children, and ourselves to be grateful for what we have? Having an attitude of gratitude shifts our focus from what we lack in life to appreciating what we presently have in our lives.
Make showing gratitude extra special, by offering extra credit points for doing one or more of the following over the Thanksgiving break (for credit, ask them to take a picture of themselves doing "the act" and ask them to email it to you before returning to school).
As you may know, tomorrow is World Kindness Day. We've put together a few resources and activities to help you spread kindness.
